Flagship Smackdown May ’16: Galaxy S7 vs. HTC 10 vs. LG G5

by birtanpublished on November 21, 2020

Hey sorry didn't see you there was hoping to talk to you guys about some phones I hope you'll like phones because I've got three phones that I want to talk to you about one is the Samsung Galaxy s7 edge one is the LG g5 and the other is the HTC 10 you might notice something about all these phones these are all flagships and it is now may of 2016 and we kind of want to see how these all stack up now that you can all buy them for yourselves that hardware is a really fun one because we can basically just say cool g5 you're at it here the g5 does not feel good in the hand the build feels really really poor

To the touch and then it's also really really poor when it comes to the actual little details about the device there's a gap between the chin and the body and that's just sloppy things don't line up properly for me the HTC 10 is just the king of build for this year everything about it screams attention to detail it's just carefully constructed it looks gorgeous the details especially like this ridged button I mentioned that in the review are just very very very present on this device more so than than the other two that we're talking about that said the hardware on the s7 really

Matters because this thing's waterproof if you need a waterproof device there's no one else that's gonna do it for you right now if you need something that's going to be able to handle getting wet in a kitchen or something that you just don't want to have to worry about dropping in the toilet because you're really clumsy then the s7 is again basically the only option for you finally the g5 does have one other small thing going for it because it's quote-unquote modular the battery can be pulled out from the bottom it's the only flagship with the removable battery as

Of right now so if that really matters to you that's a selling point but in terms of hardware in terms of feel in the hand I gotta give it to the 10 this is just the one that feels like it's the right size two screens the right size i can reach everywhere on the screen and the phone just feels phenomenal in my hand if I could just have HTC build every phone I ever buy and swap out the rest of the components for better stuff than they've been putting into their devices I would be so so happy neither the HTC device nor the g5 are particularly rich when it comes to

Software features especially recently HTC seems to take a little bit more of a tone down closer stock approach when it comes to software Samsung has not there's a lot of stuff but that comes with the negative side of running TouchWiz which means you're not going to get updates very fast and it means that you're going to get some really aggressive brand management and some less than ideal experiences when it comes to the UI and UX however on the 10 this is the closest to stock we've seen HTC come and it's not as close as Motorola's but it's pretty darn close so

For someone like me who hates the software on the s7 and loves the software on stock Android the 10 kind of takes it for me here all right now for the camera this is a fun one because all three of these devices actually take excellent shots there's still a small issue with some pinkish hues in indore photos on the 10 but overall excellent excellent photographs but man I I think you're gonna be surprised at this one but I have to give this one to the g5 more often than not it feels like the software on the s7 is is is leaning towards making sure you get the shot not

Necessarily making sure you get a good shot the camera software in the g5 is just superb I think they did a phenomenal job with making sure that the iconography is really understandable parsable readable capital and that there's a lot of really fun features in here for you to use and it also adds a lot in terms of the actual experience this second 8 megapixel shooter is a wide angle lens and i have not had so much fun taking photos and videos on on a phone since this thing or you know since a long time ago or until this one came out it's a lot of fun ok there

Isn't another phone out there right now that can replicate images like these I just think that the camera on the g5 is above and beyond fantastic g4 last year was also very good but they really outdid themselves this time it was a glow snatch up between the s7 and the g5 but overall I got to just give it to the g5 battery life is pretty easy to gauge the s Evan wins pretty handily it has the most in terms of milliamp hours and it lasts the longest in terms of uptime and screen on time this is just the best one of three the other two come in at a sieve ined it's almost like

No one got second these are both in last they're not great in terms of battery you're gonna get 11 hours of uptime three hours of so screen on time basically both of them have battery life straight out of 2015 so that's not what you're looking for in a flagship device that costs six to seven hundred dollars so I'm not thrilled on the battery life with either of these two that's a pretty easy win for the s7 speaking of easy wins for the s7 the display and finally on two speakers don't normally make a big deal out of this but because these make sense I think it's worth mentioning

So boom sound is here on the 10 but it's not in a dual stereo front-facing speaker configuration you've got a lowe's and a highs driver on the device in two separate places one is bottom firing and one is front firing I actually think the ESN David agrees with me David and I are both on the same page about this the the speakers on the s7 I think are much much louder nothin I shouldn't say much much louder but they're definitely lauer if you put place them side to side on your desk play on one same song stop and then play on the other one there's a pretty

Noticeable difference the s7 is pretty darn loud and now time for the all-important customization section and on d brand you get a ton of options for customization for all three of these devices but we gotta give it to the HTC 10 there's just way too many areas to customize here you can do all kinds of colors you can make it look really ugly you can make it look really pretty if you want to so customization goes to debrand on this one and thank you so much d brand for sponsoring the channel very much appreciate your support you guys can head over to debrand com to get

Your own skins make it look as good or as terrible as you want to so we're looking at three flagship devices and all of them have their strong suits but I think you might know which ones the winner already despite the fact that the s7 is easily the most expensive and the fact that I still don't really think that flagships have enough to offer that difference in price is big enough for us the consumer and you're not giving us enough to merit the difference of three hundred dollars from a four-hundred-dollar phone that's perfectly respectable up to a seven

Hundred dollar flagship that you claim does everything either way between these three devices despite the love I have for the 10 and the I don't know i er I have for the g5 I think that the winner is the Samsung Galaxy s7 it's just the best all-around package this year despite its incredibly high price point when the price comes down you better believe that you better pick this phone up because the screen is fantastic the build is fantastic the cameras fantastic the speaker is fantastic it's a great fun it's a great great phone thank you guys so much for watching this quick

Little 3-way showdown between the three flagships that are out right now let me know what other devices you want to see included in these kinds of videos let me know if this worked for you if you want to see more verses of this nature including three devices you want to focus on a particular kind of thing more often let me know if this was fun for you if you didn't like it just like anything else on the channel will never do it again again thank you all so so much for watching be kind to one another and i'll catch you the next video
